      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Thought I might start things off...this was my first archery deer ever, and first deer period! I shot her opening morning at 17 yards, just a nice-sized doe.

Here's a little guy I removed from the city of Duluth. Just doing my part to help with the crowd control. wink.gif

A great memory from this hunt is that this little guy was the first deer taken with my new bowtech. While practicing the day before opener my old bow blew up so I raced out and bought a new one. I became confident shooting with it that same day and after the season started I made a perfect shot on a tasty deer.

I watched this deer for 3 weeks prior to Michigan's Archery Season. Opening morning he came in at 6:50AM but didn't give me a shot. Opening night he came through at 6:10PM gave me a quartering away shot at 15 yds, I stuck him good and watched him go down about 40 yds later. I dont know how to score a buck and I dont think it scores that much but it would be interesting to find out some day. It has a 16.75 inside spread and it's longest G2 is 9".

It was a 9 pointer and dressed out at 202 lbs.

Here's a picture of a doe I harvested tonight! Beautiful shot placed right into her boiler room. She bled out and found her about 60 yards from where the arrow passed through. I love Montec G5 broadheads! grin.gif

Let me guess...Browning White Gold Medallion.... .270...

If not it looks like one...I used to have the 7MM and I couldn't bring myself to drag it through the woods/field any longer traded it in and got the Stainless Stalker which I don't worry about getting banged around.

Nice animal!

Can only one pic per person be submitted or is there no limit? I posted one earlier to add to the thread but plan on taking a huge buck and another doe and am wondering if that would be alright to submit them as well. I'll still post the pics just wondering for the contest part. Good luck to everyone! Keep it going!

Yes it is a .270 White Gold Mediallion. I bought it knowing how I was going to use it. I don't like banging it around but I expected it too. I have had it about 5 years and it has done really well for me.

Dave Frank


Yes he is going on the wall. The really cool thing about him is that he has a double set of horns. He has some about 1" tall horns behind his main set. Pretty neat the guy whos land we were on said he had never seen that before. You can see the pictures of the double horns in the North Dakota forum.

      I would trade my crossbow for normal bow any day

      That's correct.  For now.

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!

      Any where from 12' to 30' humps. Bass and a few walleyes setting up on top and sides of these humps. Cliff

      Duck hunting is expected to be good when Minnesota’s regular waterfowl season opens a half-hour before sunrise on Saturday, Sept. 23. “The number of breeding ducks in Minnesota and North America has been good in recent years, so we’re optimistic that will result in a good duck season,” said Steve Cordts, waterfowl specialist with the Department of Natural Resources. “Wetland habitat conditions and wild rice lakes are in pretty good shape.  Canada goose populations remain high as well, so there’s lots of opportunity to hunt geese this fall.” Duck seasons and limits
      The duck season structure is similar to recent years. The waterfowl seasons are based on a federal framework that applies to all states in the Mississippi Flyway. Waterfowl hunting regulations are available wherever DNR licenses are sold and online at mndnr.gov/regulations/hunting. Duck season will be open for 60 days in each of the three waterfowl zones: In the north zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Tuesday, Nov. 21. In the central zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Sunday, Oct. 1, closes for five days, then reopens Saturday, Oct. 7, and runs through Sunday, Nov. 26. In the south zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Oct. 1, closes for 12 days, then reopens Saturday, Oct. 14, and runs through Sunday, Dec. 3. The daily duck bag limit remains six per day. The mallard bag limit remains four per day, including no more than two hen mallards. The daily bag limits are three for wood duck and scaup; and two for redheads, canvasbacks and black ducks and one for pintails. The DNR will post a weekly waterfowl migration report each week during the duck season. The reports are typically posted on Thursday afternoon at mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl. Goose and sandhill crane seasons
      Minnesota’s goose season will reopen in conjunction with the duck season statewide on Sept. 23, with a bag limit of three dark geese per day the entire season. “Dark” geese include Canada geese, white-fronted geese and brant. The daily bag limit for light geese is 20. “Light geese” include snow, blue and Ross’s geese.  Goose season will be closed in the central and south duck zones when duck season is closed. The season for sandhill cranes remains open through Sunday, Oct. 22 in the northwest goose and sandhill crane zone only. The daily bag limit will be one sandhill crane per day. A $3 sandhill crane permit is required in addition to a small game hunting license. More information on duck, goose, sandhill crane and other migratory bird hunting is available in the 2017 Minnesota Waterfowl Hunting Regulations booklet from license vendors and online at mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl.

      Citizens interested in volunteering to discuss Lake of the Woods fish and habitat can apply to participate in the Lake of the Woods fisheries input group, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Applications must be completed by Monday, Oct. 10, and are available online at mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. “Input provided by this group will be used to update the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan for 2018 to 2023,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette area fisheries supervisor. “Volunteers will give valuable stakeholder perspectives regarding important fisheries and habitat protection strategies for Lake of the Woods and the surrounding watershed,” Talmage said. Group members will meet five or six times between December and May to cover topics including walleye and sauger management, sportfish population objectives, habitat priorities and invasive species. Talmage said protecting the high quality resources within Lake of the Woods is important. “While walleye in Lake of the Woods are a big focus of the DNR’s management efforts, the lake also offers a wide range of fishing and other recreational opportunities that are vital to local communities, important to northern Minnesota and of significant value statewide,” Talmage said. For additional information on the Lake of the Woods fisheries input group and the self-nomination process, contact the DNR Baudette area fisheries office, 218-634-2522. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
